A combination of African and Spanish cooking, spices and fruits are its signature.
Variety of seafood, spicy meats, tropical fruits, hot peppers, and root vegetables.
Rice and beans—If it’s plain and basic, that’s fine. But this is often coated in high-fat coconut milk.
Callaloo dishes usually contain salt pork and coconut milk.
Jerk Chicken—smoked and seasoned with peppers, and served with a number of tropical fruits.
Stew Peas & Rice—pork or beef with kidney beans over rice. Often comes with flour dumplings called spinners.
Escoveitch Fish—marinated with vegetables, peppers and vinegar, and served over rice with plantains and fruit chutney.
The Big Tip:
Scotch bonnet peppers should throw up a red flag. Unless you LOVE the hottest of hot peppers, your mouth may regret it!
